*Weather and COVID policy: In these times of often extreme weather, there may be days that are too dangerous or uncomfortable to meet outside.  At Sticks and Stones Farm, there are indoor accommodations available, and depending on the conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic we may meet inside or to meet online as determined by the program staff.  In the event that an overnight is canceled, it will be rescheduled within a month on another weekend date.  Generally we will not cancel due to mild weather like temps in the 30s or because of rain.

 

Because of the ever moving nature of COVID-19, policies regarding safety may change, however currently participants are welcome to be mask-less while we are outside.  We will be outside for the vast majority of the program.  Masks are required while we are in indoor spaces, unless the entire group consents to being maskless.  If you are feeling sick, test before coming to class and don't come if the test is positive or if you haven't tested.  There are no refunds for weather or covid safety-based cancellations.
